I just wanted to highlight two events going on at McCormick & Schmick’s – their new Crab Special Menu and their St. Patrick’s Day events. Then read on for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate!!!!

Here’s the deal:

  • For each Kiss Cocktail purchased, you’ll receive three “I Got Kissed” stickers
  • Give out the “I Got Kissed” stickers to strangers as an easy way to make friends (and get some potential real kisses)
  • The guest at each restaurant/bar that night with the most “kisses” will win fun prizes, which may include dining certificates, promotional items from beverage partners and much more!
Plus, there will be plenty of special menu items available that day, starting at just $3.95! Special items include: Corned Beef Sliders and Guinness-Steamed Shrimp at the bar, or Corned Beef & Cabbage and Lamb Stew in the dining room.

And, there’s more! Visit the McCormick & Schmick’s Facebook page and enter the “Pucker Up & Try Your Luck” photo contest and be entered to win a $300 gift card to McCormick & Schmick’s! (And don’t forget… further down for ANOTHER chance to win a $25 giveaway!!!)

Through the end of April, McCormick & Schmick’s is giving guests the opportunity to “Discover America’s Crab” with a special menu showcasing several varieties and preparation styles for crab. Check out the deliciousness:

Sounds GREAT, right? Especially the Lobster Ravioli, yum!!!! And then finish that off with Trifle!?!?!?!? I LOVE TRIFLEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But what if you don’t really know too much about crabs? Perhaps you are new to the area and afraid to ask any of the locals :) Well, the good folks over at McCormick & Schmick's have included some “Crab 101” tips to share with you. Along with their descriptions, they’ve also included sample menu items that correlate:

Comment #5.... the seafood content in yours truly's blood is dangerously low, and I live with a vegetarian wife, so your certificate would be a perfect answer!
